“Lovely visitor Centre”
Reviewed 9 July 2013 via mobile

Tis should be your first port of call when you enter the Skyline Trail from the Front Royal end.
The staff are very helpful and knowledgable and ther is a short 10 minute film that is worth watching just to get an idea of the countryside.
At the same place they have a small shop which to be honest they could make more of. Some books and some T's and that's about it.
Good viewpoint toilets and a lovely picnic area where we were visited by a herd of deer.

“A good place to visit at north end of Skyline Drive”
Reviewed 13 May 2013

This is one of 3 visitor centers on Skyline Drive, about 5 miles south of the northern entrance. It has much good information, a small museum and a short film. There are a number of nice trails to hike or walk. There are national park entrance fees to tour this area or use the Golden Eagle pass or Senior pass.

Loved the architecture. The log cabin structures seemed to fit perfectly with the landscape. The exhibits were informative and helpful.
